The order in which you bleed your radiators shouldn’t be random, either. Start with the one that’s furthest away from your boiler. And if you live in a two- (or more) storey house, bleed the radiators downstairs first, and then work your way up.
Next, gather your equipment. Don’t worry, you won’t need much. It’s a good idea to protect your floor with an old towel. A jug to catch any escaping water is also useful, as is an old cloth or thick glove to grip and turn your radiator valve. The most essential piece of kit when you’re learning how to bleed a radiator is a specialist radiator bleed key. If you don’t already have one, they can easily be bought online, or from any hardware/DIY store, for around £2 to £3.
